    hi guys,

    well, what do i tell you guys more about the sport you already know what it is..... i dont quite have anything new for you guys.. but i can only tell the difference between both the linea and punto. my linea stands at 108k kms....my punto has done 13k from dec....

    i feel the comfort is no way close to what i have in the linea.. the road grip is less comparitively, braking as well.....

    although i have so many thing inferior to my linea, there is something that is more..... the power:eek::eek: oh my god... my rear view mirror is not sufficient to fit in all the cars that i overtake on the highway:evilsmile....in the second gear the power delivery is like a rocket:redcar..

    apart from that i dont find much of a difference.. although i always keep the ac at full auto @ 23 deg in the linea but i have to keep it at 21 deg in the punto for the same cooling....

    Kudos on Punto. However, i may be wrong but isnt the breaking, road grip etc. also depends on the body size and style and design. I dont know if dynamics can be compared between sedan and hatchback is correct.

    However, you re-assured that GP is a great car. Njoy puntoing mate.
  3. At last your punto gets an ownership thread..But so short???No pics,it doesnt do justice buddy..

    Btw,whats your dad's take on the punto??

    Hey JK, finally you are writing about your Sport :)

    You had always been telling that you like your Linea more but neverthless Punto too puts a big smile on your face.
    So, you are enjoying your rides.
    Some pics of the Sport please

    I totally agree with you. I was planning to buy 2012 Linea MJD, took mom and dad on a test drive, they all loved the vehicle but somehow one thing that always went on back of my mind was power.

    I wouldn't say Linea is underpowered, but Punto 90HP felt like a breeze after driving Linea.

    Considering my bare minimum highway usage and maximum of city usage, we finally zeroed down to Punto 90 HP !!

    P.S I love both Linea and Grande Punto, coz I love FIAT :)

    Regarding the road grip and comfort.

    Comfort maybe because the Punto is with the 2012 suspension which is much stiffer to counter the raised stance.

    Grip maybe the tyres and again point number one. By grip are you referring to your confidence levels when cornering or braking?

    obvious isnt it with the smaller drum brakes at the rear and the smaller wheel base..... anyways it has the best in the class road grip and braking hands down...
